A great choice for first-time users, the original Portland, Oregon multi-tool manufacturer is making you your very own Sidekick. This handy pocket-sized tool has all the features you need to get your project done, at a fraction of the cost. The handy, outside-accessible blades mean you can open the knife with just one hand and rounded handles make getting a grip around their all-new, spring-action jaws easy and very comfortable. Stainless steel and backed by a 25-year warranty; first choice, or handy second backup, you can't beat the value of the Sidekick.
I wish all products had this quality

The Leatherman sidekick is the new enty level for the Leatherman range of multitools. There is also the new Leatherman Wingman, released at the same time. Well i chose the sidekick as i wanted a saw in my multitool.
Fits my needs, budget, and pocket

After years of not carrying a pocket knife, I decided that it was time to carry again, but I was looking for more than just a blade. I wanted it to do everything. After talking to several friends who are avid leatherman users I decided that it was time to get one. My needs were as follows: ability to open main blade with one hand, not too big to go into a pocket, light enough to carry but not so light that it feels like a toy, good wire cutters, good saw, basic screw drivers. After doing extensive research on every leatherman made, as well as gerbers and several knock offs, I decided to give this one a try.

This is a “jewel-tool”. Small,light,compact, and built well. If you’re looking an EDC with alot of functionality, this might be your answer. I think it’s more of a “sized-down” Wave multi-tool than anything else, without the “flash” of a Skeletool CX. I own just about everything that Leatherman has ever made (YES, I do like gadgets), and this is a very impressive addition to their product line. Keep in mind, this is NOT a full sized multi-tool (Surge/Wave/Charge/TTI/XTI, etc.) so be careful of the demands that you place on it, BUT certainly, do NOT under estimate its capability or quality. Worth the money you spend. GJM
Love it but baffled by the comments in some of the reviews

I like it as much as the Surge I lost. With a little patience and intuition, I found what use each tool could serve and how all the tools retracted and worked without even looking at the enclosed pamphlet. I’m not a rocket scientist but I knew what “the circular thing” was for at the get go and I also assessed what each tool would be capable of doing and its limitations, considering the size of the Sidekick compared to my AWOL Surge. As I expected, the tool is well-crafted and I already knew about the warranty on all Leatherman products from past experience. However, I’m still baffled over complaints about a tool that’s expertly made and at such a low price at Amazon. I try not to berate a product until I’ve done the research and studied the pros and cons. Hello! Complainers! Nothing in this world is perfect and neither are you. It takes patience and discovering how you can overcome adversities if they stand in the way of your desired “convenience”. Scissors? GOOD GOD! I find that tool more useless and clumsy than any of the others mentioned. What’s wrong with a sharp blade? If you’re in an office, get a real pair of scissors! Yes, I’m very satisfied with the bargain I got and I even bought another one since the price was terrific! Maybe others ought to understand that complaints are warranted if a lot of money was invested in a product. Be glad that the company producing these products still resides in the “good ol’ U.S. of A.” even though I found out that some of the manufacturing is done offshore as well. Blame yourselves, those that want as cheap a product as they can get from a company that has all the manufacturing done in China! Apple comes to mind and my disgust goes to dedicated Apple fans standing in long lines and paying a heavy premium for a product produced in China. Meanwhile Apple has all its money in offshore bank accounts so they can avoid American taxes in “the greatest country in the world”! KUDOS to the Leatherman company, at least from me!
Very Good Multitool

The tools that You will need. Very good finish. Strong construction. It feels heavy when You take it in your pants pocket or in your belt. I miss the holster for the belt.
Useful Tool for Photographers

The sidekick multi-tool is clearly not the flagship tool of Leatherman. However, I found the tool a perfect addition to my camerabag for many reasons and I now consider it indispensable.
Sturdy, useful… 10/10!

The Leatherman Sidekick is an awesome multitool! I received it right on time and it was ready to use straight out of the box. I put it through a few simple tests (whittling, cutting sticks etc.) to make sure it was working correctly, and boy did it perform! All the tools are great quality and it is very sturdy overall. After carrying it around for about an hour, it has already come in handy. My brother and I were recording a new song if ours in a park nearby when the pick guard on my mandolin started buzzing and messing up the sound. We would’ve had to deal with that God-awful noise the whole time, but luckily I had my trusty sidekick and fixed it then and there! I can safely say that if the Sidekick can be useful and prove itself indispensable within the first hour of owning it, it will surely be a great investment for many years to come. This I tell you is one worthy sidekick.
